Press play to listen to the episode below:
In a social setting, one of the most frustrating and difficult things is how to start a conversation when there’s a group of people. With a large group of people, everyone gets into natural circles. So if you are at a business or networking event by yourself and you need to start a conversation, what do you do?
Well that depends who you want to start a conversation with. In this episode, I share an amazing strategy and how to adapt it for small or large groups, as well as the reason you should never insert yourself into a conversation of only 2 people. So go ahead and apply the strategies from this episode to help you take your social affluence to another level!

- How to choose which group of strangers to approach first
